From The Bride…When we got first got engaged, we knew that we wanted to be surrounded by our closest friends and family on the day of our wedding. After careful deliberation, a destination wedding seemed to best fit that bill. When we asked around, everyone said, “Pick somewhere fun!” As native Californians, we both have a deep love for the ocean. Getting married in Bali gave us the chance to start off our marriage with beautiful cliff top views of the ocean surrounded by our amazing families and friends.

We are blessed to have friends and family who share our love of travel; our friends traveled from Boston, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Australia, and Taiwan to share the day with us. We wanted to everyone to feel like they were on a family vacation, so we started the events with a beachside welcome dinner the night before the wedding and hosted a BBQ pool party the day after.

We wanted our guests to feel like they were celebrating in an intimate backyard party and Villa Bayuh Sabbha turned out to be the perfect venue. The decor and outdoor living spaces of the 5-room estate felt homey and uniquely Balinese. The gorgeous grassy cliff overlooking the ocean gave us the perfect only-in-our-dreams location to hold the ceremony.

Even though the international travel made it a bit tricky to add personal touches to the wedding, we managed to bring two suitcases of DIY items, including all the wedding signage and framed family photos. Instead of a formal sit-down dinner, we wanted to pay homage to our Taiwanese roots and had live-cooking stations (one of which featured a full suckling pig!) reminiscent of Asian night markets. I have a personal love of cronuts, so instead of a traditional tiered wedding cake, the guests noshed on cronuts and gelato.

With everything lit in fairy lights and golden votives, the night simply glowed. We had our first dance lit by sparklers held by our guests encircling the dance floor. The love surrounding us was truly tangible and we will never forget that amazing day.

From The Bride…Toby and I met at work and as soon as we figured out that we had so much in common, we started dating. We bought a house over a year ago in Los Angeles and then Toby proposed on my 33rd birthday, november 2nd, 2012. We chose to get married in Bali because it was a childhood dream of mine, my mom being from Indonesia, I have come to bali several times and always knew it would be the place where i would start a beautiful marriage. Since Toby was from UK, this seemed reasonable as his family and friends would have had to fly out no matter where we chose. In 2012 we attended Sean and Simone Hancock’s wedding in France (vimeo.com/44029426), and that is where we had the pleasure of meeting Deneemotion. We fell in love with the video they produced and asked them to be a big part of our wedding. They have captured the most beautiful day in Toby and my life and we can now relive the magical day.

Bali Wedding

If there is one thing I’ve learned while working at SMP, it’s that crazy gorgeous weddings happen in Bali. I’m talking weddings held on breathtaking cliff sides with brides and grooms who really, really know how to throw a party.  And this beautiful day captured by Sherise Fleming?  All of the above with an extra side of pretty.  See it all in the full gallery.

From Sherise Fleming Photographer… Anna and Aaron’s wedding in Bali was truly something special. By having a destination wedding they were able to celebrate and holiday with their friends and family while enjoying all that Bali had to offer. They described their wedding theme as Modern Vintage with some Balinese aspects.

The couple were married at the Royal Pita Maha, a one of a kind resort located in the spiritually charged village of Ubud, Bali. Guests were treated to amazing views, fantastic weather and great company. The location was chosen after Anna and Aaron had visited Bali during their engagement period. With the help of their very kind tour guide Mully they searched for something different and beautiful, a place where they could have a holiday with their nearest and dearest and even return to in the future.

Anna and Aaron saw each other before the ceremony so once they were wed they could immediately celebrate with their guests. The groom first saw his bride at the bottom of the resort by the Ayung River. We had decided on this location the day before, as it was truly a wonderful spot that was not only beautiful but intimate and private. The Royal Pita Maha had provide us with some amazing locations for photos. The resort is surrounded by cliffs creating a hidden oasis that boasts beautiful water features, well landscaped gardens and amazing villas.

Their Ceremony took place in a glass chapel that was positioned on the cliff side of the resort. This ensured that all guests had a view of not only the gorgeous couple but the rainforest valley that surrounded them. A cocktail hour followed with signature cocktails and acoustic music played by Anna’s sister and cousin.

Traditional Balinese dancers accompanied by a Balinese band started what would be a very special and unique reception. The couple put on a glorious banquet accompanied by wine from around the world (thanks to their close friend that works in the industry). The night ended as it should with everyone on the dance floor.
